Learn to compose “on the fly” mobile field recordings, with host Antye Greie-Ripatti
In this participatory workshop, led by artist Antye Greie-Ripatti [aka AGF], we explore the philosophical and technical possibilities of field recordings as a tool for adding variety, space, identity and integrity to composition or sound art.
The workshop concentrates on mobile recording, with a field trip through the Brunnenviertel either in groups or individually. Afterwards, recordings and results will be listened to together, discussed and assembled into an audio work to be published online.

14:00-15:00: Fieldwork [trip outside collecting sounds]
15:00-17:00: Post-production, including uploading data to a sharing site [option for a “mix-tape” compilation]
